Festivals

Vintage Computer Festivals are a unique, fun, family-friendly experience that celebrate computing history through hands-on exhibits and presentations. Exhibits include old “big iron”, classic 8-bit home systems, modern replicas, homebrew projects, etc. Festivals also feature consignment sales and some feature classes and other activities.

Sellam Ismail founded the Vintage Computer Festival in 1997. After a multi-year lapse Vintage Computer Federation, a 501(c)3 non-profit, acquired the flagship VCF East and VCF West editions in 2015. We also launched VCF Pacific Northwest in 2018. Today all of our events are organized and run by dedicated volunteers. We are supporters of VCF Italia and VCF Southeast.

Contact evan@vcfed.org if you’d like information on how to get a Festival in your area.

There are other regional festivals using the VCF name, however these are fully independent from us.
